When a child resists contact with a parent in the post-separation environment, the “go-to” diagnosis is usually parental alienation. Rather than asking, “What may be the underlying causes of a child’s resistance?” the question often becomes, “Is a parent guilty/not guilty of parental alienation?” This 1.5-hour seminar explores the many reasons why a child may be resistant to parental contact in the post-separation environment, including the possibility of parent alienation.
